I got my first guitar at the age of three on a holiday in Spain - the only country where there were suitable instruments for children. I was inspired by my brother, who had already
received an acoustic guitar half year earlier. Later I switched to our home organ and had drum lessons until my passion for guitar gripped me again.
First role models were Mark Knopfler, Chet Atkins, Jerry Donahue, later Paul Gilbert and Gary Moore as well as Stevie Ray Vaughan an Iron Maiden (all!).
At that time there was no internet and I played a lot to LPs (records), radio and television appearances. I think that trained my hearing well and I started transcribing songs.
My first semi-professional band was an independent dark wave rock band, immediately followed by the formation of their own band “Tower Ravens” with a strong rock reference
and English lyrics.
